Leading modular flooring manufacturer, Interface, has been announced as the first sponsor for the research and demonstration project, ’The Biophilic Office’.
Aiming to demonstrate how a biophillic design (a design focusing on nature) can create a healthier and more productive office environment, the project focuses on the refurbishment of a 1980s office building on the BRE campus.
Set out by leading building science centre, BRE, and Oliver Heath Design, the new project presents a myriad of opportunities for both sponsors and partners to get involved.
Speaking about the company’s recent sponsorship deal, director of sustainable products at BRE, Ed Suttie remarked “We are delighted to welcome Interface as the first sponsor for our biophilic design project. The Biophilic Office is designed to show how quantified improvements in productivity and wellness can bring rewards for landlords, occupiers, developers and all those concerned with the office environment.”
The project is expected to commence later within the year and, upon completion, will feature an occupant health evaluation to understand how the new environment has affected its habitants.BRE Group | bregroup.com
